Live blog from The New Beginning [update]

It is a New Beginning!

At least that is what the billboards next to South Florida Highways keep insisting. We shall see today.

I'm sure you are all excited the Dolphins' regular season opener against the New York Jets is finally here. I know I am. The Dolphins are also. I got a call from one very excited Dolphins player very early this morning. Yeah, he noticed I picked the other team to win in the paper today.

He was awake and itching to get going but couldn't find anything to do so he started calling people to get them going. Not the kind of wake up call I expected today but that's fine.

I sat down one-on-one and did a question and answer column with Dolphins coach Tony Sparano for today's Miami Herald. It is a must read before today's game.

You'll get the answer to what he's thinking today, what he's most confident in and what worries him the most about his team. He also discusses his approach for reaching players.

The live blog will begin in the comments section at the start of the game so join me there.

Yeah!!!!! Fired up!!!!

UPDATE: WR Ernest Wilford, who got $6 million guaranteed money this offseason, is inactive today. Yikes. So much for recent improvement that coach Tony Sparano reported. But if you read that Q&A you'll understand why the coach doesn't call out players.

Cornerback Michael Lehan and rookie Shawn Murphy are also inactive.

Nevermind, not so serious.

yup--The Duke!

Well, Carey's out for the year. Which inept lineman is next in the rotation?

Whew! Thank God Carey jogs off!

3 & 4 & Ginn's not in?!? WTF?

Remember personal

WTH is ginn doing?

Where is the Ginn Family?


Can we even up the flags...oh yeah, Farve needs to win for the networks to be happy.

Jake Long, who had two penalties all of last year, has his second penalty of the day today.

back...offense not in sync...maybe justin timberlake can help out

defense looks good though :)

is ginn on the inactive list too????????

way too many srew up's but we can still win this one. Expect another farve turnover here...

Going antique shopping soon--this is 2007 redux.

Jake Long is a bust to such an extreme that John Avery looks like a Hall of Famer in comparison. Cut his sorry Wolverine butt RIGHT NOW!

can we please put 4 wr's in when its 3rd and 15?

Somebody is going to be cut! Bill has that WTF look!

Oh yes, we suck again you are a moron! Go away!

Bring in Henne for a series, see if he can hit on a couple 8 to 10 yard passes and get some of those Jets out of the box. 7 or 8 guys every play except on 3rd and long

we have never been a good third qtr team

Matt Cassel looking pretty good unfortunately...

break farves leg already, not sure who I hate more him or brady.

goodman playinh like a true former detroit lion scrub!

That PI looked like it oculd have been on Cotchery as Goodman.

here we go qgqin

That is crap. NFL is rigged.

Crappy, call

Tough call...

He's was playing the ball WTF. Sorry call>>>>>>

damn refs

REFs have their orders...

Sure would like to see an interception here.

This drive is killing the Dolphins because the jets defense is resting at a time they could be getting tired.


On TV it looked like a delay of game on Jets to me.

Channing Crowder and Andre Goodman are liabilities in the passing game

Zero on play clock!!!

I got to know Judson and Lankford's numbers so well by seeing the back of them as they trailed receivers...Starting to remember Goodman's now...

CROWDER can't cover ginn's grandma!

the most depressing thing about this is that the jets are running the ball seemingly at will against a Miami front that is supposed to be the team's strength

Game is now over. I hate that this is the team I choose to support

Thurteen point lead looks insurmountable the way the O is playing unfortunately...

thats a gift. they should have had a delay of game...

I sure hope the Carolina Panthers have a good year. Don't look like my Fins will be around for a few more years.

BTW, as the Dolphins first game of the year goes, so goes their season. Take a look at past history.

looks like another long season...fins are a really boring team...hard to stay awake!!!!!!

This defense is getting manhandled

ok they should be wearing down anytime now...

yeah this could be bad..or the start of something special...remmeber when Jets came back on us that Monday night????????
We need to help Ricky bust one....
Our D is out there too long
MAybe playing Henne a series is not a bad idea

not sure why there wasn't a better effort to get at least one semi-game breaking receiver..this offense is attrocious

Theory: dolphanforlife and oh yes we suck again are the love children of George W. Bush and Brittany Spears

This is absolutely painful...


just remember folks, this is a work in progress and there will be many games like this......

Yea we are having trouble with the run
and we can't stop the run. Not a good sign.

The Fins should print out this live blog and hand it out to the team after the game.......

Ok ok I jus have to accept that we are building for tomorrow, and not trying to win today. I would like to see 8 wins, if at all possible. Some one tell the tuna that his Oline still needs some work, and a few better players in that scondary would be nice. NY is tearing the secondary apart.

You try being loyal to a team that hasn't done squat in 36 years and then Justify that statement. Don't Judge me "Mike in Houston"

No team plays as boring of a game as the Fins
